I could use some help! 1 month ago i resided a house as a sub for a general contractor ( House Watch of New England) Owned by Peter DeGennaro. of Reading, Ma.
I Was NEVER payed!! He gave me two checks, the first for 1600.00 and the final remaining payment of 4500.00 i deposited both checks and one week later they came back (unsufficient funds $1600.00) and (stop payment $4500.00) i then callled him, and he had a gripe about $200 for a window i took out and framed in as the home owner asked. he sayed it was too steep. Although, mind you, he signed all estimates, change orders, and final bills with me. then cancelled the checks. i told him he could have the 200.00 and pay me again the rest. now he hasnt returned calls and is ignoring me. ive givin the info to my lawyer and weve brought it to the district court and they denied my criminal claim against him. best part is, ive got all my paper in order and signed but never signed anything binding myself or company to him, where he has.
What do i do now? how can i get my money? civil court is so slow and ill never get all my money!
all your help is much appreciated!!!
